Penticton CAO announces he is leaving

Penticton CAO Peter Weeber is stepping down from his position

The City of Penticton Chief Administrative Officer, Peter Weeber, has announced he is resigning from his position.

Weeber said he is leaving the city to accept a new opportunity in the private sector.

“It would be difficult to express in words how grateful I am for the privilege of working with council past and present, my team, city staff and the community,” said Weeber in a news release. “I leave the city for a new opportunity knowing we have the right leadership team in place and a council that is committed to doing what is best for the community. Thank you.”

Mayor John Vassilaki said Weeber will be missed.

“Council was very much looking forward to working with him over the next four years and benefiting from his valuable knowledge of local government,” said Vassilaki. “His appointment as CAO coincided with a challenging time in our community’s history and Peter and his team worked hard to resolve several high-profile files. He has been a tremendous asset to Penticton and served as a strong leader who understood the business of local government and the role that a proactive CAO plays in the community, leading the corporation and advising council.”

Weeber was hired as the CAO in 2016 after spending the two years prior as the CAO for the District of Mackenzie and previously holding CAO roles with the Village of Queen Charlotte and the District of Stewart.

“The city is in a good place thanks to the dedication of Peter and his team. On behalf of council I thank Peter for his service and wish him great success in the future,” said Vassilaki.

The city news release said that over the coming weeks Weeber will work with council to carryout a transition plan.
